DEPARTMENTS OF INSTRUCTION 



HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY. 



PRESIDENT SALEM G. PATTISON. 



The stud}^ of History is required of all students during- the 
First Year Normal, throughout the Middle Academic, Sophomore 
and Junior years. It will include the following courses : 

(a) An Elementary course in American Histor3\ 

(b) General History with a special study of the Eastern Mon- 
archies, Greece and Rome. 

(c) Mediaeval and Modern European History. 

(d) American Constitutional History and Political Econom3^ 

It is believed that these courses have been so arranged as to 
give the student an appreciation of the world's progress, tostiinu- 
late him to make independent research and to intelligently take 
part in the solution of problems relating to our social, religious, 
educational, industrial and political life. 

The instruction in Philosophy will include the following 
courses: 

(a) Psychology, embracing a study of the science and ine- 
thods of the subject, Knowledge, Feeling and Will. 

(b) Eogic, embracing the study of the elements of formal 
logic and the application of logical principles to the solution of 
numerous problems. 

(c) Modern Philosophy fro in Descartes to Shopenhaner and 
Hartman. 

(d) Christian Ethics. 

A term of four hours a week during the Senior year is devoted 
to each of the courses designated by the letters (a), (b) and (c). The 
course in Christian Ethics is a one hour course throughout the 
Junior year. 

Partial list of Texts used in History : — Johnston's History of 
the United States, Myers and Sheldon's General Histories, Oman's 
History of Greece, Wilson's the State, Marshall's Economics of 
Industries. 

Texts in Philosophy : — Dewey's Psychology, Jevons' Logic, 
Gregor3^'s Ethics, Bowen's Modern Philosophy. 



HASTINGS COLLKGE. 13 



BIBLICAL INSTRUCTION. 

EDWARD VAN DYKE WIGHT. 

The work in this department is required of every reg-ular 
student. It is believed that an appreciation of the Bible as a 
literar}' monument, a knowledo-e of its history, a conception of its 
wonderful wisdom and philosoph}^, the effect of its influence upon 
literature, art, and civilization, is as essential to the highest cul- 
ture as the study of any other subject. 

The course consists of four j^ears work one hour per week of 
progressive study. Two years of this work is given in the Acad- 
emj^ in preparation for the work in the College. 



ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 

MARGARET EYNN. 

A year of introductory work is given in English Grammar, 
for such students as are not prepared to enter the Academy. The 
Academic course begins with a brief history of the language and 
the study of elementary rhetoric, and a term of special work in the 
technicalities and idioms of the language. In connection with 
this Longfellow's Evangeline, Tennj^son's Enoch Arden, and 
Lowell's Vision of Sir Launfal will be studied next year. In the 
Middle year Brander Matthews' Introduction to American Litera- 
ture will be used as an outline for work and required readings 
from American authors will serve as studies in literature and also 
form a basis for work in language and composition also. In the 
Senior Academic j^ear the general history of English Literature 
will be studied, with specimens from valuable works. In each 
term of each j^ear at least two specified exercises in composition 
are called for and such incidental work as is valuable in connection 
with the study. 

In the College the English work for the Freshman and Sopho- 
more years consists in one theme each term upon subjects sug-- 
gested by required reading's, as indicated in the printed outline of 
the course. The first two terms of the Junior year is given to ad- 
vanced studj" in Rhetoric, the last term to criticism of special 
forms of literature. The Senior j^ear will be occupied with studies 
from Wordsworth, Tennyson and Shakespeare. 

The aim of the course, as an English course, is to give a prac- 
tical knowledge of the language, with the ability to use it readily 
and correctl3^ In accomplishing this the best literature is made 
use of , as far as is possible. It is also hoped that the students will 
not only acquire a knowledge of the history of literature, but an 
understanding and appreciation of its meaning and value, and 
the power to adopt the best in it to their own use. 



14 CATALOGUE OF 



LATIN. 



WILLIAM NEWEL FILSON. 



The end sonolit for in the Latin course is a thorong-h know- 
ledg-e of the structure of the lang-uag-e. a close acquaintance with 
the period of Roman history including- the last years of the Re- 
public and the first of the Kmpire; and a realization of the influ- 
ence of Roman law, lang-uag-e and g-overnment upon succeeding 
civilization. Prose composition is taught in connection with 
Caesar's Gallic War, and Cicero's Orations and Cato Maior. The 
stud}^ of Roman antiquities is taken up in connection with Virgil 
and Roman literature with the study of Horace. 



GREEK. 



GEORGE NORLIN. 



The Greek course is planned to give the student a sympathetic 
understanding of the masters of Greek literature through the 
medium in which thej^ wrote, and to inspire him with an apprecia- 
tive love for Greek art and life. 

The first two years are devoted to a thorough mastery of Attic 
prose. '*as an instrument for training the mind to habits of intel- 
lectual conscientiousness, patience, discrimination, accuracy and 
thoroughness,--in a word, to habits of clear and sound thinking." 
This aim is attained by careful drill in the fundamentals of in- 
flection and syntax, bj^ the acquisition of a ready vocabulary of 
most common words, by systematic composition work, and sight 
reading. An important element also in the first two year's work 
is the translation of Greek authors into good idiomatic Eng-lish. 

The ultimate end, however, in the study of Greek is not so 
much facility in translating as a direct comprehension and ap- 
preciation of the most logical and delicate of languages. It is for 
this reason that the reading of Homer is deferred until the student 
has been thoroughl^^ grounded in the uses of Attic prose and is 
able to appreciate the g-reat Epics as literature. After Homer, 
selections froin the Greek lyric poets are read, with careful atten- 
tion to the artistic structure of Greek lyric poetr3^ The Senior 
year is devoted to the stud}' of the Greek Drama and Demos- 
thenes' Orations. 

Every effort will be made throughout the course, by lectures 
and informal talks by the instructor and suppleiuentary reading- 
on the part of the student, to interpret each work of literature in 
its historical setting by focusing upon it the lig-ht of contempor- 
ary political, intellectual and moral movements. 



HASTINC.S COLLKGK. 15 



GERMAN. 



GEORGE NOKLIN. 



In the teaching- of German no one method is purvSiied to the 
exclusion of every other. The aim is rather to combine the good 
features of all. The first few months are devoted to thorough 
drill in correct pronunciation and systeinatic grammar study with 
accompanying practical exercises in colloquial German, calcu- 
lated to give the student a knowledge of German idioms and an 
insight into the peculiarities of German structure. 

The reading of German in the classroom, with careful atten- 
tion to pronunciation and expression is continued throughout. the 
course. While considerable time is given to conversational exer- 
cises to enable the student to express himself in German without 
hesitation, the course has for its ultiinate enda readingknowledge 
«of ordinar}^ modern German and an appreciation of the master- 
pieces of its literature. 



PHYSICAL AND BIOIvOGICAL SCIENCES. 

B. L. SEAWELL. 

PHYSIOLOGY. 

An elementarj^ course in this science is offered in the first pre- 
paratory j^ear. An advanced course is given in the spring- term 
of the Junior j^ear. At this time special laboratory work will be 
given in Histology, Comparative Anatomy, and Physiological 
Chemistry, and in the class work the more difficult questions and 
theories of the science will be considered. 

GENERAL BIOLOGY. 

A course in General Biology is offered in the Fall terin of the 
Freshman j^ear. Careful work is required in the dissection and 
studj'^ of types of plants and animals. Special laboratory practice 
is required. 

BOTANY. 

An elementary course in Botany is given in the Academic de- 
partment. Here the student makes a brief general survey of the 
plant kingdom, but gives most attention to the analysis and 
classification of flowering jjlants, and the careful preparation of 
an herbarium representative of the Nebraska flora. In the Winter 
and Spring terms of the Freshman year, a more advanced course 
is offered, chiefly devoted to a practical study of the lower forms 
of plant life. Special laboratory practice is required in each 
course in Botany. 



16 CATALOGUE OF 



ZOOLOGY. 
Zoolog-y is studied in the Fall and Winter terms of the Junior 
Year. In the first term a brief consideration is g-iven to typical 
forms from each of the great branches of the animal king-dom, and 
thus is acquired a general conception of animal life as a whole. 
The second terin's work is chiefl}^ devoted to a more detailed study 
of Comparative Anatomy and Histology of animals, with technical 
worJt in Microscopy. Kach term's work requires special laboratory 
practice. 

GEOLOGY. 

The study of Geology is pursued throughout the Senior year. 
Individual investigation on the part of the student is encouraged, 
and opportunity offered in the museum and laborator}^ for special 
practical study of minerals and fossils. 

PHYSICS. 

The Academic course in Physics is chieflj^ experimental, and 
introduces the student to a study of natural phenomena. A more 
advanced course is given throughout the Junior Year of the Col- 
legiate department. Here the student enters into a more exhaus- 
tive study of the philosophy of phenoinena, and the discussions 
are accompanied by special laboratory work. 

CHEMISTRY. 

A course in general Chemistr}^ is given in the Middle year of 
the Academic department. In this course the student is expected 
to acquire a general knowledge of the most important principles 
of the science, and to studj^ experimentally the most common 
non-metallic and inetallic eletnents, and their chief compounds. 
In the Fall term of the Sophomore 3^ear a course in Qualitative 
Analysis is offered, and in the Winter and Spring terms of the 
same j^ear the students of the Scientific course are given a course 
in Organic Cheinistry. Special laboratory practice is required in 
all courses in Chemistrj^ 



MATHEMATICS. 



ROBERT E. MORITZ. 



The aim of this department is to present Mathematics in a 
form sufficiently coinplete to accomplish each of three ends: — 
1. — To train the student's power of application and concentra- 
tion of mind and to assist him in forming habits of logical and 
consistent reasoning; 2. — To lead the student to an accurate 
knowledge of such mathematical principles as may be involved in 
an}^ of the other branches of his college work ; 3. — To offer a

mand for better and more extended facilities in a musical educa- 
tion. Thorough and exhaustive courses will be given on piano, 
org^an, pipe organ, violin and in voice culture. In a city the size 
of Hastings musical students have the advantages of such inspir- 
ation as comes from hearing the best talent, froin musical organ- 
izations and from enseinble playing. Pianos and a pipe organ 
are for rent for practice.

in Room 3 of McCormick Hall on September 18th and 14th, ac- 
cordino- to the following- schedule: 

8:00 A. M.— Kno;-lish and Histor3^ 
10:00 A. M.— Latin, French and Greek. 
1:30 P. M.— Mathematics.

ADMISSION UNDER CONDITIONS. 

Students may be admitted conditionally to the various college 
classes, provided the work with which' they are credited does not 
differ from the work in the course preceding- the year they wish to 
enter, by more than the following number of ^ units : 

For admission to the Freshman class. . . .20 units. 

For admission to the Sophomore class . .15 units. 

For adinission to the Junior class 10 units. 

For admission to the Senior class 5 unitvS. 

REGISTRATION. 

At the beginning- of each term, each student is required to 
register for the studies which he expects to pursue during the 
term. All registrations for irregular courses, or for tnore or less 
than the usual amount of work, are subject to the revision or ap- 
proval of the faculty. Permission to abandon a course which has 
been commenced, or to take up a course after it has been begun, 
must be obtained from the faculty. 

ATTENDANCE. 

Regular attendance at chapel and at every recitation of the 
classes for which the student has registered is expected of ever}^ 
student whether College, Academic or Normal. Students in the 
Academic and Normal classes inust give in writing reasons for 
necessar}^ absences from recitations, and in case the excuse is ap- 
proved, will be required to make up the work thus missed, in a 
manner satisfactory to the professor in charge. 

Students of the College classes need not present excuses for 
absences, but should the number of absences in any study exceed 
10 per cent of the total number of recitations in that study during- 
the term, additional work equivalent to one-fifth of the units which 
that stud}^ represents, will be required before the work for the 
term will be complete. An additional one-fifth will be required 
for absences from every additional 10 per cent of recitations. 

* A unit of work is the work necessary for one recitation a week throug-hout a 
term; e. g-. a study reciting- five times a week throughout one term is equivalent to five 
units of woi'k. The terms vary somewhat in leng-th, but twelve weeks may be con- 
sidered an average term. 



HASTINGS COLLKGK. 21 



ATHLETICS. 

Students are encourag-ed to eng-ag-e in manly sports, but owing- 
to obvious reasons it will be necessary for students having- 
parents or'g-uardians to present to the Faculty the written consent 
from such parents or guardians, before participating- in any 
match-game of foot ball either on the college athletic g-rounds or 
elsewhere. 

SPECIAL EXAMINATIONS. 

Regular examinations will be held at the end of each term in 
such classes as have been scheduled during- the term. Special 
examinations to complete back work or to assist delinquent 
students may be arranged for at any time, but a special fee of $1.00 
will be charged for ever}- such examination. The proceeds from 
special examinations will be used for the equipment of the depart- 
ment in which the exainination is taken. No fee will be charged 
for reg-ular or entrance examinations. 

REPORTS. 

Students may learn of their standing at any tiine by inquiring- 
of the instructors or professors in charg-e. Students failing in any 
study will be notified at once, and the report of such failures will 
be sent to their respective parents or guardians at the close of 
each term. 

FEES AND EXPENSES. 

Tuition for Fall term, $8.00; for the Winter and Spring terms, 
$6.00 each. Students for the ministry will not be charg-ed tuition, 
but they may be required to render services to the amount of 
tuition. Children of ministers pay one-half the reg-ular tuition. 
An incidental fee of $2.00 per term, and a library fee of 25c per 
term will be charged each student. A diploma fee of $5.00 is re- 
quired upon g-raduation from the CoUeg-e. Lessons in music, per 
term of twenty lessons, $20.00. Room rent for young- ladies in 
furnished rooms, including- heating, $9.00 per term for Fall and 
Winter, and $7.00 for the Spring term. Two ladies are expected to 
occup3^ the same room. An additional fee of $5.00 per term will be 
charged where young- ladies room alone from choice. The rooms 
in Ladies' Hall are furnished with all necessaries except bed 
clothing-, pillows and towels. Young- men can secure furnished 
rooms in private houses near the campus at 50c to $1.00 per week. 
Unfurnished rooms tnay be secured from 25c per week up. Board 
Is furnished at Ladies' Hall at $2.00 per week to ladies and g-entle- 
men. For use of piano, $1.00 per month for one hour a day; $1.50 
for two hours. A moderate laboratory fee will be charged, also a

deposit of $1.(X) to cover breakai>-e all or part of which will be re- 
turned in case the actual cost of the articles broken does not equal 
this amount. All coUeg-e fees are payable in advance. 

It will be found by a comparison of expenses that the advan- 
tages in board and rooms, with the small tuition fees make the 
expense to the students less than at institutions where there are 
no tuition fees. 

SELF HELP. 

See Industrial Department, page 27. 

GRADUATION AND DEGREES. 

A certificate of graduation will be given to those w^ho have 
satisfactorily^ pursued the studies of the Academic Course. This 
certificate will admit the holder to College classes without further 
examination. 

Those who have completed the Classical course of the College 
will be granted the degree of B. A.; those who have completed the 
Scientific Course, the degree of B. S. 

GRADUATE WORK AND HIGHER DEGREES. 

Graduates of this college or of other colleges whose standing 
is recog-nized by the Facultj^ may obtain the Master's degree, cor- 
responding to their Bachelor's degree already taken, on the fol- 
lowing conditions: 

The equivalent of one full j^ear's work must be done b}^ the 
applicant along one or two approved lines of stud3^ The course 
of advanced study will be outlined by the department in which 
the work is done and must be approved by the faculty. 

In case of non-residents, at least three years of study will be 
required, the applicant being expected to give at least one third 
of his time to the work. 

The above time requirements are necessar3% not sufficient con- 
ditions, and shall in no case be construed to mean that a longer 
course of preparation may not be necessarj^ in man}^ cases. 

No regular class-rooin courses in graduate work can be given 
at the present time, but resident students will be required to ar- 
range for fortnightly conferences with the professor under whose 
direction the work is taken. In the case of non-residents, monthlj'- 
conferences either in person or by correspondence must be ar- 
ranged for. 

Resident students will be required to pass quarterly examina- 
tions on the siibjects pursued, while non-resident students will be 
required to take a yearly examination, all such examinations to be 
held at the Colleoe. 



HAST1NC;S COIXKGK. 23 



A tliesis giv'iiig- satisfactory evidence of mastery and scholarly 
attainment in sotne branch of the line of studies pursued, must be 
presented. Such thesis need not necessarily- be a new contribu- 
tion to the stock of knowledo-e on that subject. If the thesis is ac- 
cepted, the candidate may present himself for final examination 
on the line of study pursued, the examinations being- not neces- 
sarily confined to the prescribed reading. 

There will be no tuition but a fee of $1.00 will be charged for 
each conference, whether in person or by correspondence. Two 
copies of the thesis (t3^pe written or library hand) together with a 
diploma fee of $10 will be required of each successful candidate. 



GENERAL INFORMATION, 



ORGANIZATIOiM AND RELATIONS. 

Hastings College was opened for the work of instruction in 
September 1882. It is under the control of the Synod of Nebraska 
and has been from the start under the care of the Board of Aid for 
Colleges. With the beginning of July 1897 it will sever its relation 
with the Board of Aid for Colleges and secure that freedom, which 
all colleges that hope to realize a broad degree of usefulness must 
have. In taking this step it is not unmindful of the benefits re- 
ceived through our College Board and the responsibility which 
this ver}^ freedom imposes but hopes under the blessings of God 
and the encouragement of His people to realize the ends for which 
it was founded and has been maintained. 

ITS FIELD. 

A glance at the inap will show at once the advantage which 
Hastings has geographically as a site for an educational center. 
From here railroads reach out in ten different directions, making- 
Hastings College easily accessible to nearly all portions of the 
state. If a line were drawn north and south through Nebraska, 
having to the east of it all the other educational institutions of the 
state which do full college work, there would be left to the west of 
that line three fourths of the territory of the state, and according" 
to the last census about one half of the population of the state, 
with Hastings College as the only college. Hastings College is a 
strategic center for Christian activity and influence in the West.

GROWTH AND WORK. 

The Colleg-e has enrolled over seventeen hundred studentvS. 
The3^ have come from twelve different states, from sixty differ- 
ent counties in Nebraska, from more than one hundred different 
towns and communities. Over one hundred have become Chris- 
tians after coming- to colleg-e. Eig-ht are now reg-ular ordained 
ministers. Fifteen of the students of this year have the ministry 
in view, and nearly as many more, who have attended Hastings 
College recently, are preparing- for the ministry. Seven have gone 
-to foreig-n missionary fields and others are in preparation for that 
service. After June 16, 1897, forty-eight will have been g-raduated 
from the Colleg-iate department. Of these students many are oc- 
cupying- responsible positions. One has been State Superintendent 
of Public Instruction. Two occupy chairs in their Alma Mater. 
One is instructor in Hig-hland University. Two have been award- 
ed fellowships in the University of Chicag-o. One fills a vacancy 
in Drury College. 

BUILDINGS AND ACCOMMODATIONS. 

The College has two commodious buildings, with a beautiful 
campus of twenty-three acres. McCormick Hall is named in 
honor of the lamented Cyrus H. McCormick Sr., of Chicago. A 
cut of this building is given on the first cover page. In this build- 
ing are the recitation rooms, the chapel, the library, the physical 
and chemical laboratories and the museum containing specimens 
in Mineralog}^, Zoology and Botany. 

Ladies' Hall, a four story building, a cut of which is given on 
the last cover page, contains on the first floor the accommodations 
of the boarding department, including waiting room, spacious 
dining room, kitchen and rooms for the matron of the boarding 
department. Good board is furnished here to all students at two 
dollars per week. On the other three floors are pleasant rooms 
for eighty-four young ladies. The entire building is heated by 
steam and furnished with city water. Dr. Kay, the secretary of 
the Board of Aid for Colleges, pronounced it a better equipped 
building of its kind than any connected with a college under the 
care of the Board of Aid. The young ladies who room in this 
building are under the care of the Preceptress, Miss Lynn, who 
uses every influence to make their college life profitable and com- 
fortable. 

THE MUSEUM. 

The College Museum is receiving from time to time valuable 
additions, an.d already contains many well chosen specimens 
illustrating every department of science. The collection of rocks, 



HASTINGS COLLKGK. 25 

iiiiiioralw and fossils has been gathered from more than sixteen 
states and territories, and several foreign countries, and illustrates 
a wide range of subjects in Geology, Mineralogy and Paleon- 
tology. The department of Zoology is particularly well represent- 
ed b}^ two large cases of Nebraska birds, several mounted speci- 
mens representing other orders, and a large number of marine 
and fresh water shells, and corals. 

The department of Botany is represented by an Herbarium of 
about 2500 plants representing about 1900 species. These plants 
have been received from nineteen states and territories, and also 
Canada, Mexico and England, thus furnishing opportunity for the 
study and comparison of plants from a wide geographical range. 

There are besides, a large number of Marine Algae from the 
Atlantic coast, and other specimens illustrating Cryptogamic 
Botany. The cases containing these plants are open for examina- 
tion, comparison and study, while a special case of Nebraska 
plants is provided for those stud3^ing the flora in the vicinity of 
Hastings. 

LABORATORIES. 

The College Laboratories are supplied with necessary appa- 
ratus and material for all the science courses, and is constantly 
being replenished and increased. In so far as it is practicable 
students in all laboratory work are required to perform experi- 
ments for themselves, under the constant supervision of the in- 
structor in charg-e. For the use of apparatus and materials con- 
sumed, each member of every class having special laboratory 
practice, is required to pay a small laboratory fee, and to make a 
small temporary deposit to cover breakage. 

LIBRARY. 

The library now nuiubers about 3500 volumes and a fund is 
being created that will enable the various departments to add 
from time to time such new books as are necessary for reference 
and research. Donations in books or cash for books will be ver}^ 
acceptable. An especial effort will be made to add to the collec- 
tions bearing upon American and English Literature and History. 

A small library fee of 25c per term will be charged, part of 
which will be expended in the purchase of magazines and period- 
icals, to be kept on file in the reading room for the use of students 
and faculty, the balance to be added to the general library fund. 

Plans for giving- the library a new and permanent home in the 
south hall are nearly completed. The transfer will probably be 
made during the coming summer.

PUBTvTCATIONvS. 
There are two monthly publicatioiKs; "The Colleftian"' pub- 
lished by a stock company composed of students, and "The Out- 
look" published by the President for the express purpose of 
informino- friends of the Colleo^e of the progress of the work and 
the immediate needs of the Colleg-e. 

LECTURE COURSES. 

There will be, aside from the lectunes delivered on required 
subjects, a course of general lectures consisting of one number 
by each member of the regular faculty. Other lecturers will be 
secured from time to time. All general lectures are free to 
students and to the public. 

ORGANIZATIONS. 

The Whittierean Literary Society, organized in 1885, admits 
to its membership both ladies and gentlemen. It offers its 
members excellent opportunities for training in debates, oratory 
and composition, which no student can afford to neglect. It meets 
every Saturda}^ evening. 

The Hastings College Athletic Association is an association 
of students for the organization and training- of teains in the 
various student sports in their season, and for arranging match 
games, tournaments, etc. 

The Hastings College Alumni Association is composed of 
the graduates of the Colleg^e, and has for its object the perpetua- 
tion of g-ood fellowship among its members and the advancement 
of the interests of its Alma Mater. 

The Collegian Stock Company, an organization controlling- 
the management of the Collegian. 

The Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Associa- 
tions are two active students' organizations, doing general as well 
as specific Christian work in College. They hold separate meet- 
ings on Wednesdays and weekl}^ joint meeting's on Saturda^^s. 
They also carry on special Bible and Missionar}^ training classes. 

The First Presbyterian Church of Hastings has the finest 
Presb3^terian Church building in Nebraska. While all the 
churches of Hasting-s extend a hearty welcome to the students of 
different denominations, unusual advantages are offered for those 
6i Presbyterian preferences. 

ENDOWMENT AND NEEDS. 

There is at present an endowmentof$15,000part of which is non- 
productive. The tuition fees aggregate to less than one-third of 
the current expenses. It is easily seen that until the endowment is 



HASTINGS COLLKGK. 



increased tlie College must depend upon gifts for a large portion 
of its running- expenses. Our immediate and urgent need is an en- 
dowment of $1(X),000. Friends of higher education in g"eneral and 
of Christian education in particular should awaken to their re- 
sponsibility, or rather realize their opportunity, in supporting- and 
endowing- Hastings College. Established at the very frontier, 
Hastings College is better fitted than any other institution to 
train for the regions west of it, teachers and ministers, to raise 
up missionaries for the home as well as the foreig-n field. It is a 
home missionarj^ coUeg-e, building for Christ in Central and 
Western Nebraska. 

The following- form of bequest may be used b}^ the friends of 
Christian education who can and will come to our relief.

AUXILIARY DEPARTMENTS. 

The Boarding Hall at which board is furnished to students at 
$2 per week.

The Professional Bureau, which will make sj^stematic efforts 
to place into positions such students as desire professional work 
and are well equipped for it. 

The Industrial Department. 
The organization of an industrial departinent is not wholly a 
new departure. Some other colleg-es have made more or less pro- 
vision for assisting 3'oung ladies and gentlemen to secure a 
Christian education but only one other college in the United 
States has made so ample provision for furnishing- self-help to 
students as Hastings College. Worthy and efficient students will

their board without interfering- with their colleg-e duties. No 
assistance will.be g-iven for meeting- other expenses than the 
board. Since the expenses at Hastings College are so very low, 
and aside from board need not exceed $50 to $75 a year, this 
provision will undoubtedl}^ enable manj^ of the noblest and most 
promising 3 oung ladies and g-entlemen to secure a colleg-e educa- 
tion. Those who desire the advantage of this department should 
write President Salem G. Pattison, stating- their desires and asking- 
for Circulars I and II. Circular No. I will explain more fully the 
plan of the Industrial Department and Circular No. II is in the 
form of a contract to be signed b}^ all students admitted to the 
privileges of this department. 

RELIGIOUS INFLUENCE AND EXERCISES. 

While the College is unsectarian in its training-, its influence 
is positivel}^ Christian. The professors are characterized by firm 
Christian character and active Christian influence, as well as by a 
broad and thorough scholarship. Moral and religious culture 
are recognized as essential to the highest development of full 
manhood and womanhood. Divine worship is regarded as a 
necessity in the normal life. Chapel services, therefore, are a 
part of the reg-ular daily exercise which each student is required 
to attend. There are reg-ular mid-week prayer meetings for the 
3^oung men and women held bj^ the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. 
respectively. To these all students are cordially welcomed. 
There is also a joint prayer meeting- of faculty and students on 
Saturdays instead of the regular chapel services. Many students 
have been converted as a result of the influence exercised at these 
meeting-s. There is a systematic course of Biblical instruction 
which all regular students are required to take. It is required 
upon the ground that other subjects are required, a knowledg-e of 
the Bible, its history, its philosophy, its literature, being- consider- 
ed essential to a broad culture. Students are also expected to 
attend public worship either Sabbath morning or evening- at some 
one of the churches of the city. Each of the churches conducts a 
Sabbath school at which the students will receive a cordial wel- 
come. 

GOVERNMENT AND DISCIPLINE. 

The Faculty as yet do not know of any reason for departing 
from the known principles on which they have hitherto endeavor- 
ed to act in the g-overnment and discipline of this institution. 
That principle has been fully set forth in former catalog-ues. 
Briefly stated it is this: Wherever possible, the g-ood sense and 



30 CATA1.0GUK OF 



ri<>lit inleiilion of the students will be relied ui^oii to secure cor- 
rect conduct without any interference. With a few exceptions, 
those who have been connected with the institution have proved 
themselves worthy of this trust, and the Faculty are both g-rateful 
and proud to say that the public spirit of the students has been 
one of the most effectual ag-encies in securing- order. They hope 
that in the future, still more than in the past, the relations of 
teachers and pupils will be marked by friendliness and sym- 
pathy. It is their earnest desire to help the students, not merely 
as teachers, but also as friends, and nothing- could be more dis- 
tasteful to them than to assutne the attitude of overseer or judge. 

Every student is expected to be diligent in study, and to de- 
port himself in a gentleinanly manner, both in College and in the 
community. When the Faculty are satisfied that a student is not 
fulfilling these expectations, his parent or guardian will be noti- 
fied of the fact, and then, if there be no reformation, his removal 
will be requested. Each college class is in charge of some mem- 
ber of the Facult}^ who is the class officer and keeps a record of 
attendance upon colleg^e duties. 

The Faculty feel it their right and duty to sever the relation 
between the College and -any student, whenever in their opinion it 
becomes necessary, for the best interest either of the student or the 
College. The only true liberty, is the liberty to do what is right. 
Whenever a student's action injures the Colleg^e or his fellow 
students, it is necessary that he should reform or sever his con- 
nection with the institution.
